I've also been a relatively recent lurker on MDC who'd put herself in the "semi-crunchy" category who's really been a bit shy to post. It's good to hear that there are others out there and I'm guessing it's easy for our experiences and thoughts to get lost among some of the more vocal, more "crunchy" opinions out there.
It really has been hard to figure out exactly where I fit in parenting-wise and being in-between can sometimes be pretty isolating.
Example... I'll put myself out there and offer up the fact that I'm an MD (ob/gyn none-the-less) but plan to keep my mouth shut about most medical related stuff more because I know I've only heard one side of the story and I don't feel I have enough concrete knowledge about the non-medical side of the picture to pass judgement. I spend my days at work with super-moms who have nannies who work 60+ hours per week and find the most exciting part of parenting to be buying the trendiest baby gear who look at me with blank stares when I showed them pictures of me with baby in a sling.
On the other hand, as a full-time working mother, support structure for attachment parenting practices are limited given that most support/play groups are focused on weekdays, and many of the concrete practices are just not practical - cloth diapers at day care just wouldn't fly and gerber baby food will just have to do. I guess that's where on-line support comes in.
I guess that's just a long winded version of saying Hi.
